The Winnipeg Jets recalled forward JC Lipon on an emergency basis Friday from the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.

Jets left winger Nikolaj Ehlers is out indefinitely with an eye injury after being hit in the face by the puck during the game-ending play in overtime on Thursday night.

The 20-year-old Ehlers, who has 13 goals and 31 points in his rookie season with Winnipeg, just missed giving his team a rare come-from-behind win on a two-on-one against the New York Islanders, only to back check on the ensuing rush and have Frans Nielsen's wild shot hit him in the face and land on Kyle Okposo's stick.

Lipon was recalled for the second time this season. He played in two games with Winnipeg after joining the Jets on Jan. 17. Lipon has played 45 games for Manitoba this season, recording 30 points (13 goals, 17 assists) and 87 penalty minutes.


The New York Rangers recalled goaltender Magnus Hellberg on an emergency basis from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL.

Rangers starting goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was not expected to dress Friday night against the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center.

Lundqvist was having neck spasms during the second period of a 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night.

Lundqvist was pulled after the second period against the Penguins. He allowed three goals in a span of 1:39 late in the second and did not return to the bench for the third period.

Hellberg has appeared in 40 games with the Wolf Pack this season, posting a 22-16-2 record, 2.39 goals-against average, .919 save percentage and three shutouts.


The Anaheim Ducks recalled center Chris Wagner from the San Diego Gulls of the AHL.

Wagner has scored four goals with 26 penalty minutes in 37 games with the Ducks and Colorado Avalanche this season.

The Ducks also reassigned right winger Stefan Noesen to their AHL affiliate. Noesen went scoreless in his Anaheim season debut in Arizona on Thursday night.))
